Ten rare Arts & Crafts homes for sale in London now – from Muswell Hill to Maida Vale

Asymmetry is the calling card of this short-lived architectural movement, which inspired housebuilders well into the Twenties
Arts & Crafts style on the market in London

Most of us can identify a Georgian build, know Brutalism when we see it and could even take an educated guess at Sixties versus Seventies.

But the lines get a little blurrier around the ephemeral Arts & Crafts movement.

A cluster of architects modelled this very British style after the arts movement of the same name, which saw main proponent William Morris attempt to re-establish the use of traditional craft skills as a rallying cry against mass production.

Distinctive yet hard to define, the movement’s know-it-when-you-see-it design relished in asymmetry, idiosyncratic details and the use of local materials.

Purists will note that the ‘true’ Arts & Crafts homes were built just after the turn of the century (spot the gems below) but some housebuilders into the Twenties and Thirties incorporated Arts & Crafts thinking into their designs.

Here are ten of the best for sale now.
